La Casa della Pace

The volume presents the experience of Maison de Paix: an international cooperation project promoted by Associazione S.F.E.R.A. in collaboration with the UNESCO chair of Università Cattolica with the aim of supporting, through education and training, the empowerment of the local community on the outskirts of Kikwit, in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

"La Casa della Pace" (The House of Peace) aims at making its own contribution to the realization of the "Global Compact on Education" to which Pope Francis invites us, investing in the formation of young people to support new development models.
